Book Review - Vintage Notions

The book Vintage Notions by Amy Barickman is a collection of the work of Mary Brooks Picken and The Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences including original patterns, essays, advice and illustrations. I once found a book by Mary Brooks Picken at my local library and fell in love with her work.
Vintage Notions is organized into monthly chapters featuring seasonal recipes, advice and sewing patterns. There is only one sewing project per chapter (12 in total) but the book includes fun and interesting original content from the 1920s and 30s.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in vintage sewing or women's history. It's really a lot fun to read and interesting to discover how similar and different lives were almost a hundred years ago.
